It's up to the lad now to prove he has the tools to do the job now. 2 years and not a lot to show for it. He's now of age, but I don't think he's as good as Bernard, Walcott or Richarlison. Not yet at least.

18 months. 6 of which were spent at RBL, where I'd say he has plenty "to show for it".

What a great option off the bench and for when Walcott gets injured.

Needs to show it here. Not bothered about the splash of form he had over there. Apart from a goal against city and that meaningless game in Europe he’s really struggled with us.

Hope he makes it but the onus is on him to prove it.

That's a very ignorant view to take. We sent him out on loan to develop, and the evidence he has done just that. Yes he needs to take his chance, but he's a young kid who made a 2 league jump and got very few chances. He was handled poorly from the outset in terms of his development.

He thinks he is a top player or should be playing for a top side. I agree he needs minutes and he needs time but he thinks he is better than developing slowly and for that reason he doesn’t get the time or the patience from the fans to develop. He has to show it this season.

It’s the facts. And Silva said as much in that article I posted.

We also wanted to send him to Derby as he would have got more minutes there.

So what if he would have got more minutes at Derby, he did well at Leipzig and scored goals in front of big crowds, training with top players day in day out. He proved himself at a top club and is seen as one of the best players for his age in the country. Good for him for having the confidence to go to Germany and challenge himself more than he would have to do at Derby County.

There doesn't need to be pressure on the lad. "Time to step up" is a ridiculous argument from you both. He's a young player that needs nurturing in order that he reaches his potential. Proper 'bloke down the pub' shout the whole "time to perform" bollocks.

The "he thinks he's better than he is" shouts are also just as daft.

He doesn’t seem to think anything that’s not true. It appears he wanted to play elsewhere but as they actually wanted him he’s obviously right to think he could play there

Like to see him start today (assuming a lot of our new players aren’t quite ready)
Good that we’ve got plenty of options in his postitions now so there’s not pressure for him to carry our attack

I hope Walcott starts, tbh.  Then give Lookman the last 20.

Cant believe people still think he should have gone to Derby.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

It looks to me that he's got firmly hold of the reins, and none of the preening young aces are going to intimidate him. It's pure and simple professional man management. We've been missing that since Martinez was doing well here. It's early days, and there are going to be hiccups, but what a window. Everything, up to now has gone well. :)
